I think I'd serve it with grilled anything. It sounds very good. We can always count on Mish to give us something new and delish!

Hi lyndalou. Nice to "see" you. Thank you for the kind words/compliment

Makes a good picnic side too with southern fried (or grilled)chicken, big green salad & a cold macaroni salad or grilled corn on the cob - OR an accompaniment to salmon & grilled asparagus...or grilled anything, as you mentioned. Could experiment w cheese of choice, mozzarella, swiss, muenster etc. or add some sliced zuccinni(sp) to the pie as well. Green tomatoes might be interesting too.

That looks delicious! Can't wait till I get some good fresh tomatoes and try it.
I planted more than I needed, in case some didn't make it, but all 10 are doing great. My husband does not like fresh tomatoes (un-American!) but does like them cooked or roasted, so I'm sure he'll dig this dish.

Thank you Constance. Lucky you! I love tomatoes. Could probably eat a tomato sammich w mayo. Somewhere, think I posted a recipe for Tomatoes Fontina - stuffed with a tubetti pasta & fontina cheese, if you need some ideas.

That sounds good, Mish. Right now I all have are blooms and one little green Roma coming on.
First thing will be a BLT with mayo!

Last year I oven roasted some Romas with a few herbs and whole garlic heads, then put them through the food mill (I have one on my Kitchen Aid). Talk about some luscious tomato sauce! I also put a lot of them through the mill raw, for a nice puree to cook with.

Go ahead Constance, rub it in. You have fresh tomatoes & I don't. (I'm kidding with you, I hope you know.) The best thing this city girl can do is wait for my herb Chia pet to blossom. Another idea for a go with for the tomato pie - cream cheese omelette topped with guacamole & honey-do & can't elope on the side.

Wish I was family bucky! I'd be more than happy to let you pawn a few 'mater plants off on me.
